12:15-1:30 – Business Networking at the tables – 2 minute table talks
This is the main part of our business networking events where we take our seats on our carefully planned tables.
Every table is crafted to ensure while you are business networking you are
- Never sat with a competitor,
- Sat with people where there is collaboration or referral opportunities
- Sat with people you could do Business with directly – to Buy or sell.
- Sat with a diverse group of leaders with authority to buy as well as sell.
Everyone has a chance to exchange their business cards AND present their business to the table of 7-9 other diverse senior leaders for 2 minutes, at our business networking events .

We sometimes enjoy a brief 5 minute after lunch speaker – a member sharing advice, Business updates, or simply share a compelling vignette.
Our business networking events close at 2pm – a chance to finalise 121 meetings, say goodbye – or indeed grab a fellow member and carry on the conversation.
